Investing a fixed amount each month is also known as Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA). This is a popular investment strategy that is not only used in the crypto world.

The idea of DCA is that you spread your investment over several moments. In this way you are less affected by extreme price fluctuations.

Do you believe bitcoin will continue to rise in value over the long term, and can you set aside some money each month? Then this is an excellent strategy.

The advantage of salary in bitcoin is that you receive a fixed portion in bitcoin from us every month. So you don't have to make an effort to buy bitcoin yourself every month.
